Streaming video

The library provides dozens of film databases for course use. We also have DVDs for in-class viewings. To use streaming video in a course, instructors need to fill out our Request streaming video form. Do this for each film you plan to use (if you're requesting multiple films for the same course, you can use the back button to avoid retyping course information). Please give us plenty of lead time to process streaming video requests.
